In the UK its illeagle.
Or at least I think so, I just havent had the guts to walk into the police station and ask,  But in the US you can own a pair, but if you are found carrying one in the street you can have it taken away, and fined, But I’d say your best bet is a to make one, its realy easy.  

And welcome to bombshock, Memphis Raines.

Listen its getting pretty annoying people asking is it illegal to possess/use something whether its knuckles or whatever.Please specify what country you are in so somebody from the same country can answer the question.Otherwise you have somebody from lets say from the US telling you its illegal and somebody from the UK telling you its legal or the otherway round.Its just different countries,different laws!!!!!Not specifying what country you are asking in regards to leads to a confusing range of answers.Since this is a relevent topic I wont lock the topic but if nobody heeds my warning I will.

Yes.I am in UK and I asked at this army surplus store for some brass knuckles…the guy sortta laughed at me and said
“Are you out of your fucking mind?”..
And incase that doesnt answer your question, YES they are illegal.For obvious reasons.

And to the guy who said
“why dont you make them, its real easy”…
you wanna explain how hick?

Hello. well acualy, I was talking out of my arse, but I heard they were easy.

All I could find was: http://www.totse.com/en/bad_ideas/irresponsible_activities/161537.html  

Comeing from tose, I bet thats a crock of shit.

Come on guys! Back me up here!

(IN THE US) yes if you have a local european car repair etc shop around you could make one. You need a mill, that is where i used mine.tell the hippie that works there you want to make a pair. He said yes to me, illegal or not.

dont break in, some guys live there, and are crazy, they would mill your hand into bare knuckles 🙁

he’ll have tons of  brass or whatever there and just drill holes where you feel it, or form a mold with clay and reproduce it on the metal.

i have carried mine but theres really no reason because of the high risk. instead what i will be making soon will be plastic maybe w/ “bondo” because when i was looking into leagality i can remember that in my area it is illeagal to have a *metal* knuckle. that means any peice of it has any metal on it. you presume the rest.

i forgot to say to check your state/ gov website, and search for “knuckles” or under assault weapons and what constitutes one.

Yo kid, I do not give a flying fuck about the laws and whatever else around my, nor anyone elses state/country.

I guess the easiest way (thinking about it) would be to make a mould like you said, one of which that you could poor melted metal into it to form, BrassKnuckles. But making a mould for this is the problem.

— Posted by yowyowwow on 6:27 pm on Mar. 30, 2002

actually that would work too.

make the exact kind you want out of wax !important!. then put it in “heat resistent plaster”, make sure theres a hole going to the wax knuckles in the liguid with a straw etc. to the outside. when the plaster drys, hold it with the hole down, heat up the hole and the wax will come out. then fill the mold with hot liquid metal.

I ordered mine off a site on the net.They are sold as “paper weights” but are the real thing.Brass,crome or aluminum.Only 10 bucks

— Posted by thadon41 on 8:12 pm on Mar. 30, 2002

post the link?

— Posted by Memphis Raines on 8:58 pm on Mar. 30, 2002

survivalstore.com has some

— Posted by Darkie on 10:41 pm on Mar. 30, 2002

Legal? of course paper weights are legal. Just tell the cops that you took it home from the office by accident. But why would u get caught anyways? Just knock the cop the fuck out.

Instead of carrying “brass knuckles”, why dont people you just carry a combination lock.  Its cheap, legal, and just as effective in putting in some serious cranial damage.

— Posted by Ghost on 4:59 am on Mar. 31, 2002

Who cares if the knuckles are illegal or not if your gonna bash some1 with em your gonna get in2 shit anyway.A lock no thats shit you want somthing on tha fist 2 punch not wack  some1. punching is the best

— Posted by balor on 12:27 pm on Mar. 31, 2002

We have a thread discussing the use and fabrication of knuckles so post the manufacturing ideas there and can we stick to what this thread is about which is the legal implications of buying/possessing one.

— Posted by 7th Street on 1:38 pm on Mar. 31, 2002

It IS for punching dumbass, just hold it in your hand a certain way.

— Posted by Ghost on 3:03 am on April 1, 2002

No tha lock idea is just not hapinen no i wants 2 fight with a shit lock

— Posted by balor on 1:38 pm on April 1, 2002

The title of this thread is brass knuckle laws.Since Ghost and 7th Street have some sort of problem understanding the title with their argument about about how to use a lock as knuckles.If they cannot stick to the topic your posts will be deleted by me.Otherwise as I said there is a thread on the use of knuckles so post your suggestions on their use there.

— Posted by thadon41 on 10:12 pm on April 3, 2002

Thank you Memphis Raines for that link.

I would still like to know about making them though :O)

LMAO looks like Balor is having/had a bad nite/day…lol j/k

— Posted by balor on 3:43 pm on April 4, 2002

It just gets fucking annoying if somebody wont stick to the topic and branches off.Then you have two or threads where one would do.Thats why there is one for the legal aspect of knuckles and one for the buying/improvisation/manufacture of knuckles.

— Posted by SIN NeMeSiS on 5:00 pm on April 4, 2002

In the U.S carrying Knuckles is illegal, and if found carrying them you will be fined ann the knuckles confiscated. I suggest you keep it secret if you do have them on you. And use them only on people who you dont know and who don’t know you, to avoid being fined.  

— Posted by davetheduck on 8:24 pm on April 4, 2002

in the uk/US they r illegal, they are classified as an unlawful weapon and if u r caught brandishing or concealing one in puglic the police can arrest u for it if they beleive u r intending to use one, i was in prison  with a guy who punched someone with one and it killed the bloke so if u wanna use one be prepared to do time

— Posted by thadon41 on 11:24 pm on April 4, 2002

Yeah I get your point Balor.fair comment. But, that link Memphis Raines gave…is shit..lol for one reason, the people want $55 to ship to the uk! thats without the price of the actual product on top! this is fucking crazy, rip off people!
anyone know of a company/website in the UK to get them? .

— Posted by spootyguy on 9:39 am on April 6, 2002

I dont think it matters if they are illegal, police’ll pull you in regardless of what you are hitting with if you are fighting in the UK… might as well cave in some face if you are going down anyway… Either that or just dont get caught 🙂
Check out the ‘how to make ’em’ thread, i posted something about plumbers putty.

— Posted by Mr Tripp on 4:27 pm on April 6, 2002

As far as I know in the UK if your caught with Steel knuckles on yourself or in yer car, its considered an offecnsive weapon, and they will charge you as if you had a Baseball bat.  The penalty is like maybe a couple of month imprisonment or an unlimited fine or some shit:P

— Posted by paladinpress on 12:22 pm on April 7, 2002

fuck as far as Iknow you can not even have a stun gun, I live in the USA but I saw a post on a Diff “Fourm” that If some dude was rapingyou’re wife and you carcked the fucke on the head with a bat that you get more time them him, I mean I think that they are to panaiod and they have given up to much of their rights and now it will be a steep up hill battle just to GET BACK the right  to have SELF DEFENSIVE weapons, I wish you Brits luck

— Posted by Mr Tripp on 2:51 pm on April 7, 2002

Yeah I heard theres this part of the law that you cannot use a weapon in self defence unless your attacker has one, and it cant be more lethal than his. If he has a bat you couldnt pull a knife on him or you’d get fukked.
Well thats something that happens here anyways, or so ive read.:angry:
